The best way to discover the Lech canals is to take a walk through the old city. A good starting point would be the “Rotes Tor Park” (Red Gate) at the tram stop ”Rotes Tor” (tram line 2 towards "Haunstetten Nord", tram line 3 towards "Haunstetten West P+R", tram line 6 towards "Friedberg West P+R" and also bus line 35).


The Lech canals flow through the entire area of the old city, where they continually come to the surface. The most southern point is the Ice Canal (Station Nr. 22). The most northern point is the Lower Waterworks (Station Nr. 5).
